Ram Reveals 2018 Southfork Edition in Texas


It wouldn't be a if one — or several — of the big truckmakers didn't reveal a top-of-the-line trim for luxury-loving customers. The latest entry for a Dallas debut is Ram's Laramie Longhorn Southfork Edition, which offers one of the most opulent interiors — think "Dallas" and the Ewing mansion from days gone by — available in any factory-offered pickup. Ram will offer this new trim level for half-ton, three-quarter-ton and one-ton platforms.

The Southfork Edition features full-grain leather seats and leather-wrapped grab handles. Overhead will be a unique and plush Light Greystone suede headliner and set of visors. The steering wheel will be trimmed in thick walnut, and the glove box and floormats feature special-script Longhorn badging. Galvanized interior trim pieces and Ruby Red seat, console and dash accent stitching will flow throughout the rest of the cab, complemented by walnut-colored ash wood details. All Laramie Longhorn Southfork Editions include the Uconnect 8.4-inch multimedia touchscreen featuring navigation, 4G Wi-Fi, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration.

The most distinguishing exterior feature is on the tailgate, where chrome stretched lettering spells out the word Longhorn. Southfork Editions will be available in all the Laramie Longhorn colors, including the new two-tone RV Match Walnut Brown.

Southfork models will be offered with 4×4 or 4×2 drivetrains, in crew-cab or Mega-Cab configurations with short or long beds. Pricing for the Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn Southfork Edition 4×2 with the 5.7-liter V-8 starts at $52,615, while the Ram 2500 4×2 with the 5.7-liter Hemi starts at $57,015 (both prices include destination charges).
